agreement and not through the un resolutions that completely ignore israel's vital security and national interests. this resolution is one-sided. it pushes things backward. as for the rise of the jewish people, i have a simple message for those people gathered in the general assembly today -- no decision by the un can break the 4000-year-old bond between the people of israel and the land of israel. [applause] mr. president, the people of israel wait for a palestinian leader in that that is willing to follow in the path -- the world waits for president abbas to speak the truth of peace that can only be achieved through negotiation by recognizing israel as a jewish state. it waits for him to tell him that he will address israel's security needs and end the conflict once and for all. he prefers symbolism over reality, as long as he refers to travel to new york for you and resolutions rather than travel to jerusalem for hope and dialogue, any hope of peace would be out of reach. israel has always extended its hand in peace and will always extend its hand for peace. when we face and a rebel l

to the un in the short term. we have our urge them not to do that. clearly, if they do so, we will have to consider the right way to vote. in the end, we will not solve this problem at the united nations. this problem will be solved by israelis and palestinians sitting down and negotiating, and there may be dangerous from pushing it too early at the un, in terms of a cutoff of funds for the palestinian authority, and all the other consequences that could follow. let's get negotiations going. >> we expect to hear more about the situation in the middle east, in particular, israel and gaza, when the un dangerous from pushing it too early at the un, in terms of a cutoff of>> you cy council meets. officers changed the army so that it is a long- term army purify your shoulders -- soldiers in the labor market. over five years we created an absolutely splendid force of young men and women who were willing to serve their country as volunteers, and they had the same tradition and same culture, the same loyalty and dedication as any other dedicate -- generation of americans that came before.

success, his extraordinary leadership, his un flinching patriotism, his belief in the common good, his devotion to the unending fight for a more perfect union. yes, mr. president, tip carried this torch for all who believed the purpose of politics is to improve the lives of others. tip carried the torch for the underdog, for the person on the street, for the families struggling to pay the bills. he carried the torch of opportunity, equality, and to every budget negotiation, every legislative battle, every bipartisan agreement. tip carried the personal -- personal manifestation of the american dream and he carried the torch for everyone else who strived to achieve it. for tip, standing on principle is not about political gain, it was about fighting for the voiceless and for the aspirations of the middle class. for tip the effort to reform and save social security was not about figures on a page, it was about the seniors struggling to make ends meet. that's why we were always so proud of what he did with preg reagan to prolong the life of social security. for tip floor debates were not a

that is the un's help is needed. so we see that continuing policy of focusing on military support to president hadi as well. >> thank you. >> thank you. donna cranfield for the middle east. i agree with both of your comments and statements that the narrow view of our security approach is counterproductive and development approach should be taken. a bit too pushy both a little bit further in defining what that would look like. imagine you said at the pentagon and try to conceive of a programmer approach to be more project to an understanding that you don't have to be responsible for the next bomber who does slip through the cracks and understanding that the development approach i think we all see as fundamentally essential will take years if not decades to actually achieve it subject to so for the and medium term strategy, what is the alternative? pulling back and drum strikes may be something that i like to see. i guess that also with the mind of the last question that presidents hadi's rough embracing is seeking ownership in the way he mentioned that needs to happen -- [inaudible] s

war without a un resolution, they were very uneasy, but now, we find people saying, "maybe obama should do it," for different reasons. it is not tied to the election. the election is not going to solve the problem for them. >> let me also say i agree, 100%. do not get me wrong. i do not think that us going in and invading is going to change perceptions. either way, there is going to be these perceptions. helping syria is by no means going to change the perception that we helped some countries because of resources versus others -- that we help some countries because of resources versus others. >> i see no such trend in the country. i just do not see any public support for it. i think shibley has got it right. intervention would make things worse for syria and for us. you ask what is going to look like in a year, and i push it out five years. i think we are looking at a civil war. every player in the region. right now, what you have got is what started as a peaceful uprising has now been transformed into an insurgency and, you know, basically every player, the saudis, the turks, ot

be part of an un-united nations. it's time to get serious because people are dying around the world including our own ambassador. time to quit covering for the truth. let us get down to what the truth is and let the chips fall where they may. let us find out who did what wrong and hope and pray there was no criminal activity. certainly there was negligence, but you don't know until we get a proper investigation. and an attorney general cannot properly investigate himself. an attorney general cannot properly investigate his boss. one department, the f.b.i., cannot properly investigate another agency unless that department's ultimate boss, the president, is aware and coordinates and now that we know that did not happen according to the president, he knew nothing, like sergeant schultz from the old "hogan's heros." i didn't know anything. someone else made those decisions and i didn't know anything until after the election and i deny all plausible deny built. until we have an independent investigation by someone with the power to do it properly. and if the executive branch will not do

court, or the u. andn. the country's -- or the un. if the country is not a democracy, they do not respect rules. putting a suicide bombs on mentally disabled people and sending them into a crowded marketplace? these are unthinkable atrocities that terrorists commit because there is no ground in, no inhibitions. they do not adhere to any role whatsoever. that is why i think some countries, and some jurists, have commented that democracies are sometimes called or handcuffed in their ability to respond in conflict -- sometimes cobbled or handcuffed. those rules for many, certainly non-state actors, do not exist, thus the conundrum. how do you respond? and sometimes respond with restraint when you're motion is to do otherwise? >> senator mccain. >> john kerry has been very active in this issue. i think it will require a presidential push to convince a few. i think it's important that we move forward with that. just one additional thing. as i mentioned, and as we know, the world is so rapidly changing. the unpredictability of the world is the one thing but i think we would all agree on

internet's unparalleled success. at the un last year, president obama spoke strongly about this, saying the u.s. will support a free, open internet so individuals have the of permission to open up their minds. no one has been a more forceful advocate of the economic and social opportunities of the internet than hillary clinton, who delivered a landmark speech in 2010 when she said one of the most fundamental freedoms of the internet age was the freedom to connect. the idea that government should not prevent people from connecting to the internet, to websites, or to each other. internet freedom is sometimes cited to average it as an obstacle to addressing cyber security issues. i disagree. not because i question the importance of the issues and magnitude of the threat, because they are very serious problems we have to address. but i believe, based on my experience, that we can address those issues without undermining core values like internet freedom and privacy. we have put our money is where our mouths are. we have taken important steps. we developed a code of conduct for i ssp. other

talking about grover norquist. this man is an un-elected person who is making you sign a pledge that has nothing to do with -- with the country. guest: thank you. respectfully disagree on all accounts. especially at the very beginning. you made the case that we are talking about 47%. the fact is, republicans are not. democrats are raising this issue over and over. they see political advantage in it, but one of our frustrations as republicans with that 47% is that many of them don't have the good-paying type of jobs they want that would allow them to be taxpayers. our frustration is that we have an economy that is flying so low and so slow it's very weak. we have so many people unemployed. so many people on food stamps. so many people who don't have a choice they have to rely on the government. we want that 47% to be reduced by stronger economic growth. we want those who begin in the lower classes of income to become middle tax taxpayers. and to rise to higher levels as well. that's our frustration. host: congressman braidy, we have been talking about this fiscal cliff that congress i

millions of people un document. if you move people out of that status, that will have a positive benefit not just to people, but to wages being depressed. equity is a critical issue. we face a significant challenge -- in the short-term, medium- term, and long term, there is so much inequity in education. it is not something that the political process likes to discuss, but it is one in which we need to think more creatively about how -- ideas not good for our -- it is not good for us in the medium or long-term. >> nice to go last on this because i can think.
